Things I liked:I have several 177 caliber air rifles and I wanted this one because of it's muzzle velocity with 22 caliber. I set up my chronograph on the rifle and it lives up to it's advertised velocity. It averaged 980 ft/sec. which is great for a 22 caliber. It has a lot of knockdown power as compared with a 177 caliber. The pellet will go through a 1/2" pine board. I really like the green & red laser sighting. You can pinpoint small targets at 50 yards with the front red laser sight. Things I would have changed:It could use a better scope. I removed the scope and just use the laser sights. It has a large "jar" upon pulling the trigger and this will throw you off target. I had to make a "V" shaped forearm rest for the stock to shoot with any accuracy. What others should know:This is the heaviest air rifle that I own. It also takes a lot of effort to break down the barrel to reload.
Things I liked:This is a very realistic pistol and the main reason that I bought it. I like the speed loader, shell ejector and safety switch. Things I would have changed: The CO2 socket seems to have a problem. Holding the pistol with the barrel straight up, I can hear a CO2 leak. Holding it down, it goes away.
The plastic handles move around in your hand and should be fitted better. The screw that tightens the CO2 cylinder in place, appears to be made of cheap plastic. What others should know:There should be instructions included with the speed loader on how to lock the shells in the loader. I found out how, by trial and error. Using a chronograph, my muzzle velocity was a high of 350 fps and a low of 342 fps. The advertised velocity was 426 fps.
If you're looking for a high performance pistol, stay away from this one. If you're only interested in realism, then this is the gun for you.
